Hoo boy. This is going to be tricky.
What we’ve got for you here is a first look trailer for episode two of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series. That’s fine in and of itself. You could give it a watch: it’s quite entertaining.
The problem is in saying anything about it. After all, the unofficial motto of Game of Thrones appears to be “spoiler warning!”
This is particularly an issue given that Telltale’s contributions to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire are set alongside the events of season four of the television series, so anyone not up to date on that isn’t going to be happy if I mention anything I shouldn’t.
Then there’s the fact that lots of you probably haven’t yet played episode one of this series, so I don’t want to go and spoil anything there either. Although the trailer itself might do that. Hmm.
What I can say about this trailer is that it includes three fights, two scenes involving torture or punishment, five weighty conversations and one flipped table. As to the context of these incidents: that, my friends, you will have to learn for yourselves.
Episode two is expected to arrive in early February, including with the £23 season pass.
